Yes...I get cold and can't warm up no matter what I do. I live in central NY and it's cold 6 months out of the year. Last night we went out for awhile...had the seat warmers on in the car...dressed in three layers, and when I got home I stood in front of the wood stove for about 15 minutes, then finally went to bed with a down quilt and two other blankets. I am still cold this morning. My arms feel like they have been in the freezer. So...you are not alone!
The cold weather kills me. I am a smoker, though I want to quit. My husband and I don't smoke in the house because of our son, so we go outside or to my neighbor's house when she is home. But, for the most part, we are outside. Everytime I go outside to smoke, I feel like I have been locked in a meat freezer. I could be feeling fairly good in our nice warm house, and I bundle up to go outside and I instantly start to hurt. I know how you feel. I can't wait until spring when things start to get warm again. I can't stand the cold. And it really sucks, because I used to love playing in the snow and then coming back in the house and rinking a nice warm cup of cocoa.I hope you start feeling better soon, sweetie. Just try to stay warm. Take a nice warm bath. I find that really helps when I am struck with pain due to cold weather. Hang in there. We are here for you.
Me and the cold did not get along before I got fibro, now we REALLY don't get along!! I was in so much pain for weeks when winter first hit here, it is a little better now. I am a smoker also, but only smoke in my laundry room in the basement with the door shut or stand by the back door with two feet on the first part of the deck and smoke a half cigarette because I get cold instantly! I can't keep going in the basement to smoke because the stairs are killer for me if I keep going up and down them. The upside to this is I don't smoke that much because it is too much work or I get too cold! My only saving grace is a hot bath if I can't warm up and that works for me.
